Who is Reconciliation Shreveport?

We are a vibrant beloved community that recognizes and respects our differences, addresses conflict nonviolently, dismantles oppressive structures and supports harmony, diversity, compassion, solidarity and reconciliation.

Communities improve and people flourish when we attain clarity of purpose, vision and engage our neighbors in ways that sustain relationships and seek justice.

We are nurtured by diverse cultural traditions and united by our conscious choice to understand, reconcile and forgive. We celebrate our mission by embracing open communication and breaking bread together.
